Well, that's that…

Had my op yesterday to remove the plate from my ankle – pretty quick too – I was at the hospital for 7am, in theatre for about 10.45, back on the ward for 12.30 and out by 2pm.

Pain was quite intense for a few hours, but slept ok thanks to some good ‘painkillers’ and TLC from nurse Harriett.

They wouldn’t let me keep the metalwork – I thought it’d make a cool keyring or paperweight or summat, but hey – at least it’s gone now.

Oh well, my weekend’s started early πŸ™‚

Phones…love 'em or hate 'em…

Way back in 2000, I made the comment that I’d never have a mobile phone…

Skip forward a couple of years and now I feel naked if my phone isn’t within reach – I just upgraded to the Nokia N95 8gb:

Nokia N95 8gb

I love it! it does just about everything πŸ™‚ the camera (5 megapixel) is sharp, the wireless network browser works a treat – I’ve only had it a week, but it’s my baby…still have to setup the GPS and assign voice tags to contacts – all that fun stuff.

I’m all paid up for my holiday in June (that’s gonna be a great month – Foo Fighters at Wembley on the 6th, then fly off to sunny Spain on the 17th for a week with Harriett, the kids, her mum and Richard).

I goto hospital next Monday so they can assess whether the op to remove the plate and screws from my ankle (booked on the 24th April) will go ahead – I hope it does, the screws are working their way out and even wearing socks is quite painful. Of course, the scar won’t be as neat as it looks now…

Recently a few friends have commented that I look like I’ve lost weight so yesterday I weighed myself – I’ve put ON 4lb, not lost weight. I have cut down on my beer intake so I’ve lost the bit of a beer belly I had. I’ve no idea where the 4lb has gone to. Got to exercise more so I’ve got a 6 pack to show off on the beach πŸ™‚

Time to goto work – I hate this cold weather, it plays havoc with my ankle. This time last year it was warm and sunny.

Next Tuesday is one year to the day that Harriett and I first got together – a year and we’ve not really had an argument (well, trivial stuff, mainly sexual *grin*).

I could go on about work, how B757 jacks are my nemesis right now, but that’d just bore y’all.

Why can’t I be funny like Scaryduck?

Oh, I’m still really into driving – I love it – so relaxing just cruising about. Harriett’s put me on her insurance for her car and her campervan and I can borrow a company vehicle pretty much anytime so I don’t even need to spend out on a car of my own right now…life is good.
